With Homecoming approaching on Sept. 28, The Messenger asked: What aspect of Homecoming week are you looking forward to the most?
“I’m looking forward to the spirit days because they seem like they're going to be really fun to participate in, especially pajama day. Spirit days helps students to express our school spirit and it’s just a fun thing for us to do,” Kayley Lory, freshman, said.
“I’m really excited to dress up. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun to do the themed days. And the Powderpuff game is going to be exciting too. I’ve only been to one practice for the Powderpuff game so far during FLEX time last Thursday, and we ran a few plays. We’re not super good, but it’s been a lot of fun and hopefully we’ll beat the juniors,” Lauren Wendel, senior, said.
“I’m most interested in participating in throwback Thursday during spirit week because I’m looking forward to wearing some of my dad’s clothes. It’s a time to let loose. School is very tough, so it’ll be cool to see students wearing different clothes,” Alex Radovilsky, junior, said.
“The actual Homecoming dance is what I’m excited for the most. It will be a fun opportunity to just hang out with my friends. Also, I’m very excited to perform at the Homecoming football game. So far, each individual cheerleading team level has been working their performances individually, but we’re practicing our whole program performance on Monday. We’ve been working really hard,” Ashley Liggins, freshman, said.
“Ï have a lot of favorite parts during Homecoming week, but one of my favorites is the spirit days because it’s exciting to see everyone dressed up and coming together to celebrate. I also like the Wednesday night events such as Taste of Marquette, Powderpuff and the bonfire because I think it rallies all the students together and we get a lot of parents and community involved, which is what homecoming is all about - bringing the community together,” Associate Principal Tracey Waeckerle said.
